28 June 2013 Thought for the Week:
“To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.”
“I am not afraid, because this is the choice I’ve made.”
“Cowards die many times before their deaths. The valiant never taste of death but once.”
NO! NO! NO! - NO MORE POWER GRAB
The Hon. Anthony Albanese, Minister for Local Government, has announced to the Local Government Association that the government will provide 10 million dollars to the YES and NO cases. However, in a despotic move, worthy of the tactics of Stalinist Russia, to severely handicap any opposition to the government proposals, it appears that the NO case will receive only 5% ($500,000) and the YES case will receive $9.5 million.
It is an absolute disgrace that an Australian government will act in such an authoritarian manner, both in rushing through important constitutional change without giving the people time to absorb the potential implications thereof and now in allocating taxpayer monies in such an inequitable fashion. We can only hope that the electorate will see through this political gerrymandering of the referendum system.
- - Philip Benwell, National Chair Australian Monarchist League
13 weeks to go until the election and possible referendum, and the referendum bill still hasn't gone before the Senate. There is not enough time for the people of Australia to properly review the pros on cons of the proposal. On that basis alone the bill should not be passed.
SOME THOUGHTS ON THE SEPTEMBER REFERENDUM QUESTION
by Louis Cook
When a new body or group is formed, Articles of Incorporation are written by the participating parties and made public when filed with the state. Those articles of incorporation set forth who is forming the group, the purpose and function of the body being formed, the activities in which it may engage — its name and its duration.
Articles of incorporation are written and filed to establish an organization, business, etc. The group then writes a constitution and by-laws to spell out how the purposes as set forth in the articles of incorporation will be carried out. In law, the constitution and by-laws and activities of an organisation cannot go beyond the purposes set forth in its articles of incorporation. To do so can result in the organization losing its corporate charter and its right to operate.
To change a constitution requires an overwhelming majority of support and this gives security and a feeling of permanence to all participants of the organisation. A constitution should not be seen as a ‘living document’ which can be easily changed to reflect current mores or arbitrary whims.
Changes to by-laws can usually accomplish these alterations so long as they reflect the general spirit of the organisation and satisfy its members. A constitution should be somewhat like ‘Natural Law’ with ‘laws of gravity’ or laws of physics, etc., where humans must work in harmony with these laws or suffer the consequences for deviation from these laws.
The Australian Constitution was a construct of the participating States who insisted on overwhelming support by those to whom it applied and put to a referendum of the people for endorsement. It was a massive task at the time and we now enjoy the fruits of the far-sighted leaders and their purposeful undertaking.
The Preamble is the introduction to the Constitution and the final section reads: -
Chapter VIII. Section 128. Defines ‘Alteration Of The Constitution’
The framers of the Constitution bequeathed a document to us that has given over 100 years of political stability when much of the world has been in turmoil and now Australia is the place of choice for immigrants and refugees.
The September referendum proposals will not add to this stability, indeed, they could undermine it which is likely the intention of the proposers’ for change.
On September 14th Australian voters will be at the ‘cross-roads’, not only with a choice of who will govern for the next term of government but whether to accept changes to the Constitution that will have far reaching and uncertain effects on our future.
Do not hand any more power to Canberra! NO, NO, NO!
THE LIBERAL LEGACY OF BETRAYAL OF ANGLO-AUSTRALIA
by Peter Ewer
“Liberal Party Swats the Wasp (White Anglo Saxon Protestant) Type with ‘More Inclusive’ Approach” (The Daily Telegraph 11 May 2013).
Most importantly the Labor Party fears that it is losing its traditional migrant/ethnic voting bloc and that the Liberals are muscling in. Record dollars are being spent to regain the sacred migrant/ethnic vote. Abbott the rabbit, who in 1990 published an article expressing concern about the way immigration was changing the ethnic/racial profile of Australia said that Labor’s crackdown on 457 skilled migration visas “was a key reason Labor was losing its traditional migrant support base”. Incredible!
I note in passing that so-called conservative journalist Janet Albrechtsen (The Australian 5 June 2013, p.10) takes the Labor Party and Gillard to task for their “gender wars”, but she is silent about the ethno-racial cultural war against traditional Anglo-Australia which the Liberals and Labor are jointly engaged in. In fact, the Liberal Party under Robert Menzies did its bit in working with Labor to destroy the White Australia Policy and to encourage non-British migration after the end of WWII, in co-operation with Fabian Socialists such as Arthur Calwell.
Malcolm Fraser brought in tens of thousands of Asian “refugees” and John Howard, after disarming Australian citizens brought in an Asian ruling class through large-scale Asian immigration as described in The Howard Legacy (available from the League Book Services and Veritas Books online for $25.00 plus postage).
Oz Conservative: Who does Tony Abbott call the most worthy Australians?
“I want to say how brave every single migrant to this country is, because every single one of you has done something that those who are native born have never done. You have been gutsy enough to take your future in your own hands and got to a country which is not yours and make it your own.” Logic Mr. Rabbitt, Logic – what if everybody in the world played this musical chairs – the whole of civilisation would fall apart. Migrants do well because they go to places where everything is all set up for them and where they have the opportunity to do well and literally take over the country from the native-born. You don’t see Abbott’s migrants going to Africa , do you? Or Haiti?
Finally, Abbott said that migrants “make the very best Australian citizens eventually. They are the most worthy, the most welcome parts of the Australian family…” Excuse me Mr. Rabbit, are migrants “better” and more “worthy” than Aborigines? What a pity there is never the opportunity to put you on the spot in public on these sorts of questions.
Both the right-liberal and the left-liberal philosophies are anti-Anglo and destructive of our race, culture and nation. In the election it is necessary to defeat ethnic Liberal candidates – even if it means voting Labor in that electorate if the Labor candidate is not ethnic. In essence, there is very little difference between these parties, so it really doesn’t matter who wins the election - so long as none of these stupid evil parties has too much power.
Both parties need to be taught a lesson. The best result will be a knife-edge result with all the politically correct independents losing their seats, being replaced by Katter candidates, who are better than Liberals and Labor. That will deliver a message.
It will be good to see “Anglo” Tony Abbott replaced by someone like Joe Hockey which should be consistent with his multicultural philosophy. In fact, he should resign immediately as Opposition leader and allow an ethnic, preferably an Asian migrant, take his place. Show us how “inclusive” you are Tony!
Writing “REDUCE IMMIGRATION” on your ballot paper is essential.
Beyond that, we need to begin the long hard process of regaining our racial identity and like other ethno-racial groups, “think racially and inclusive”. This will not be easy because our people have been deracinated. But, many of the writers at this site have started the process of regaining ourselves and our race. Nationalist concerns about “Australia” are no longer of any relevance – the ethnic tide is now too deep. Our concerns should be with saving our ethnic group, our Tribe.

LOCAL GOVERNMENT AND COMING CONSTITUTIONAL REFERENDUM
Former High Court Justice Ian Callinan on the local government referendum, by Julie Novak. 11 June 2013, Constitutional Preservation: The Samuel Griffith Society, formed in 1992, is a group dedicated to upholding the principles of the Australian Constitution, including to defend its integrity against proposals to diminish the constitutional fabric by centralising power in Canberra. The President of the Society, Ian Callinan AC, QC, released an important statement regarding the proposal local government referendum:
All Australians should resist the proposal for a referendum to amend the Constitution to constitute local authorities as constitutional polities. The proposal will, if adopted, enable the Commonwealth government to side line the states and divide and rule a multiplicity of clamouring councils swollen in ego and, inevitably in bureaucracy.
NO Summary: On 14 September a referendum will be held to amend the Constitution to allow the Federal government to directly fund local government. Australians will be asked to insert a mere 17 news words into the Constitution that limits the power of Canberra. Politicians are arguing that change is “small” and “practical”, but it is not. Adding these few words will turn our democracy on its head, and open the doors to a massive power grab by Canberra politicians and bureaucrats to direct local services.
It Isn’t Necessary: Canberra can already fund local government through the States. This referendum removes a level of scrutiny and accountability of how our money is spent to make sure local communities get what they need.
It’s a Canberra Power Grab: By attaching strings to direct funding Canberra bureaucrats and politicians will be constitutionally entitled to direct what local services are provided, and local infrastructure is built, in every community across the country. Canberra is responsible for issues that impact the entire nation, they don’t understand what is going on in our backyard.
It Will Harm Local Services: When decisions are made by Canberra bureaucrats and politicians about local services and infrastructure it’s based on Canberra’s priorities, and not community need. That’s why we got duplicated school halls and the dangerous pink batts scheme.
It’s Bad for Local Government: Cash-strapped Mayors will be bullied through funding agreements and told to spend money in line with Canberra policies and priorities, not what is good for our local communities. The Prime Minister will hold all the cards in the funding deck.
Political Buck Passing Will Get Worse: The current buck-passing between Canberra and the States is based on the tied funding agreements that Canberra now wants to be imposed on every single Council and Shire across the country. Rates Will Go Up: Every string attached to Canberra’s funding will add layers of extra costs and regulations onto local government. Those costs will be paid for through local service cuts or rate increases.
It’s Bad for Australia: Our system of government isn’t perfect, but it has helped us build the best country on earth to live in. We shouldn’t be removing Constitutional restrictions that hold Canberra politicians and bureaucrats to account unless there is a exceptional need. This referendum isn’t necessary, and will have dangerous unintended consequences harming local communities if it is passed.
JOHN ROSKAM IS RIGHT – SECURITY MORE THAN A MATTER OF TRUST
“Barack Obama could end up doing more for the cause of small government than Adam Smith, Friedrich Hayek and the Tea Party put together. Last week's revelations about surveillance by the United States government of the phone records of millions of Americans would have been a major story at any time. But this has a special significance because it follows in the wake of a series of scandals involving the Obama administration's abuse of political power and the abuse of confidential information.
The president's supporters excuse these previous scandals on the basis that government is now so big, politicians can't control what bureaucrats do… Australians should pay close attention to what's occurring in America. At least in that country there's a public debate about government surveillance of its citizens. There's no such similar debate here.
Last year at an Australian parliamentary inquiry when Chris Berg and Simon Breheny of the Institute of Public Affairs said the federal government should not force technology companies to monitor the phone and internet records of every single Australian, Labor MP Michael Danby accused them of taking a "one-eyed view of extreme civil liberties".
That was a revealing comment from Danby. It shows the world has changed. It is now an "extreme" view of "civil liberty" to argue the government, and people like James Clapper who work for the government, should not automatically have access to your phone or computer.” (emphasis added…ed)
THERE GOES THE AUSTRALIAN WINE INDUSTRY
by Chris Knight
by James Reed
Anatole Kaletskey argues that this distribution of free money in the United States would be more effective than the present practice of the U.S. Federal Reserve printing billions of dollars of money each month and distributing it to banks and Wall Street investors through its purchase of government bonds.
ANGLO RACE VILIFICATION
by Ian Wilson LL. B.
What is of interest to us here is that Mr Wilson rung up HREOC to find out how to make a complaint and was told that there were no indigenous Britons, and that the Federal Court in McLeod v Power (2003) had found that “White” “is not descriptive of any particular or homogenous ethnic, national or racial group; nor is it a term of abuse applied to an oppressed groups” (i.e. the majority), just doesn’t count. In any case, McLeod v Power involved offensive words by an Aboriginal woman to a prison guard, referring to “white”. Mr Wilson rightly notes that if the situation was transposed and the word “black” was used, well, things would be different then.
Ultimately HREOC terminated Mr Wilson’s complaint. He concluded his article by saying that “In the land of the ethnic supremacists, anti-racism is merely code for anti-white”. Indeed, this was a valuable lesson for those out there who still believe that “the Law” is a neutral arbitrator.
THE ISRAELI LAB AND THE PALESTINIAN GUINEA PIGS
from Gilad Atzmon's website, 15 June, 2013
In "The Lab", Director Yotam Feldman exposes the Israeli military industry and its operation, he interviews some major protagonists within Israel’s ‘security’ trade. He elaborates on the role of the industry within the Israeli society and economy - in the last few years Israeli security exports reached an unprecedented level of $7 billion a year. A full 20% of Israeli exports are military or military related. Approximately 150,000 families in Israel are dependent on that industry. Israel is now the fourth biggest military exporter.
In the last decade, every Israeli military operation led to an immediate sharp increase in sales of Israeli military export around the world: weaponry, systems, intelligence, strategies, doctrines, knowledge and experience.
Through a set of fascinating interviews, Feldman conveys a very genuine picture of the Israeli death merchants. Feldman lets them talk, he hardly interferes. They are sharp, they are genuine, they are even funny at times, occasionally witty, and a few of them, might even be charming if you did not know who they are. But make no mistake, they are sinister, some of them are clearly psychotic, they are mass murderers and they are free. They sell destruction and havoc and do it very successfully.
Watch IDF Yoav Galant, the planner and executioner of Operation Cast Lead, discussing ‘proportions’: Being myself an Israeli-born and raised successful musician and writer, I think I can recognize Israeli dedication, perseverance and creativity when I see it, no matter into what service it is pressed. (Perhaps I was lucky to be rescued by bebop.) Those Israeli death angels’ talent is driven into the amplification of human misery. The consequences are tragic.
Game Changer It is far from being a secret that a century of Palestinian struggle led to practically nothing. The state of the Palestinian solidarity movement is even more embarrassing. Feldman's "The Lab" is a game changer, for it can explain decades of impotence.
The notion of resolution (as in ‘two-state solution’), for instance, is not applicable. It is clear beyond doubt that in the real world the ‘scientist’ does not negotiate with the ‘guinea pig’. The ‘scientist’ also doesn’t consider sharing reality with his ‘guinea pig’ in a ‘one democratic state.’
"The Lab" is a glimpse into the Israeli mind: you clearly do not find much compassion there. For decades we were foolish to examine the success and failure of Israeli military operations in reference to Israeli military and political ‘objectives,’ as we surmised them. We were clearly wrong. As we learn from Feldman’s film, the real objective of Israeli operations may as well be examining new doctrines and operational systems in order to distribute them around the world soon after. Ehud Barak, for instance, wasn’t exactly the most sophisticated Israeli minister of defense, he clearly failed to defend his people or even make them feel secure. However, he was very successful in selling Israeli weapons and doctrines.
Tel Aviv being subject to a barrage of Qassam rockets may be seen by Israelis as devastating news, but from a military industrial point of view, it was a golden opportunity to examine and promote the Israeli anti-missile system Iron Dome. If I am correct here, it becomes clear that like the Palestinians, more and more Israelis are also becoming ‘guinea pigs’ in this ever growing military laboratory.
One may wonder how and when "the Zionist dream" transformed itself into a military business. Only a few of us, writers and scholars, have attempted to answer this question. The transformation of the Jewish State into an oppression factory is apparently a direct outcome of Israel’s supremacist ideology. If we want to understand what is happening in the Jewish State, we must first grasp the notions of choseness, Jewishness and Jewish identity politics.
I guess that enough Palestinians in Gaza do realise by now that they have been part of an Israeli experiment. Every too often we learn from Palestinian doctors that while treating casualties of Israeli aggression they encounter new types of wounds. The Lab explains it but it isn’t Palestine alone. We also witness a growing similarity between the operational mode of police forces around the world and the IDF treatment of the Palestinians.

WORLD FROM BERLIN: PRISM SPYING ‘ATTACKS BASIC CIVIL RIGHTS’
The American politician and author Benjamin Franklin once wrote:
The world has been scandalized to learn about Prism, the broad data surveillance program used by the US at home and abroad. German commentators say that both Berlin and Brussels must defend Europe from this invasion of privacy.
Revelations about a far-reaching intelligence program in the United States leaked last week aren't just causing problems for President Barack Obama at home. While American citizens are left wondering whether their privacy has been violated by the Internet and phone surveillance, officials abroad are expressing serious concerns too.
Merkel To Address Issue with Obama
Strong Reaction from Europe
At issue is a large-scale, top-secret program, codenamed Prism, undertaken by the National Security Agency (NSA), an American foreign intelligence agency. It tracks suspicious messages from outside the United States that are transmitted through American providers such as Google, Yahoo, Facebook and Skype, including emails, phone numbers, videos, photos and other forms of online communication… The scandal has revealed state surveillance of a previously unimaginable scope by the US both at home and abroad, the latter of which is of particular concern to German commentators on Tuesday.
Center-left daily Süddeutsche Zeitung writes: "It may be that US citizens can defend themselves under the US Constitution. But that doesn't apply to foreigners. Facebook users in Germany have as little protection from the US Constitution as those in Afghanistan. Germany is the country in Europe whose telephone and Internet communications are being spied on the most intensely by the US. ... But even the best rulings from Germany's high court are useless because the majority of the Internet's architecture is located in the US. As a consequence, US authorities have the power of access, and this is stronger than basic German rights."
"The NSA case shows the expansiveness of preventive security state logic. Those who want to prevent crimes and terrorism -- whatever the cost -- can never know enough, and will always try to find out more in the name of security. Under the reign of terrorism, the legal system is changing. To track down the 'bad guys,' the entire population is being spied on with sophisticated methods in which intelligence agencies, police and possibly private networks are all cooperating. The US is a pioneer in introducing an infrastructure of surveillance."
"The only good thing about the NSA spying is that it exposes the principle tenet of domestic security that has been used to justify the rebuilding of the security system since Sept. 11, 2001: That those with nothing to hide have nothing to fear. This is simply a stupid idea."
